Not all that is taught in schools is garbage, but most kids only listen to the smallest portion of the lesson so they can barely manage to pass a quiz
or test. They probably only hear just a little bit of any lesson and fill in the rest with guessing. But lets be fair, I don't believe much of the
history taught in the American schools anymore than I would believe the English version of it. History is written by the victors and often has only a
thread of truth holding it together.
I home schooled my kids for a few months to fill in some gaps left by the public schools and while studying history I found that our history is
nothing to be proud of. Things get glorified and changed along the way, hell Lincoln wasn't even 'Lincoln' if that makes much sense. Many of
our founding fathers were English and they sort of came in with the might makes right attitude. Look at what they did to the native people, the REAL
Americans. Slavery, stolen land and more.. yes indeed our history is not one that should be looked upon with pride. I had to teach myself not
because my school didn't teach me a decent history, but because it was boring, glorified and I didn't care. I may have if there were more truth
involved.... maybe. LOL
Is it any wonder that the real history isn't taught very well or that kids don't actually hear it? It is glorified garbage! If we taught the real
truth of our countries history it would be a bloody, nasty story to be heard. One that would not put our founding fathers or any of the invading
countries in very a good light. Everyone would see our founding fathers and other countries for who they really were.
